NEW STANDARDS PROJECTS

Development work has begun on the following new or revised standards. Directly and materially affected individuals are invited to contribute to the development of such standards. Those wanting to participate may contact the Program Manager listed with the document.

Participation on AWS Technical Committees and Subcommittees is open to all persons.

B2.5/B2.5M:20XX, Welding and Allied Processes – Guidelines for Measurement of Arc Energies
This document provides a method to accurately determine welding energy and heat input, both in the case of traditional welding systems and those that employ complex waveforms. It is intended that this specification be referenced by other welding codes that require the control of heat input or arc energy to control properties of the weldment, such as strength, toughness, corrosion or dimensional properties.
